Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced a North American tour in support of the band's new box set, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection. 

The tour will stop at Talking Stick Resort Arena on Thursday, March 10. It will be Springsteen's first stop in Phoenix since 2012. Here's what Jason P. Woodbury wrote about the show last time around:

Who is Bruce Springsteen anyway?

The street rat poet singing about characters straight out of West Side Story? The balladeer casting American youth in B-movie glory, Roy Orbison grandeur, and fleets of fast cars? The protest singer, spitting bile at corrupt bankers and politicians? The soul brother, swinging his hips and taking the crowd to church?

Bruce Springsteen, standing in front of the mighty E Street Band, spent time in all of these poses last night as he finished up the Wrecking Ball tour at Jobing.com Arena, reminding the roaring crowd with each song, each shimmy, each sweaty line, that he's one of the greatest performers and songwriters in America.
